The African American Studies program is an interdepartmental and interdisciplinary study of the history, culture, and socio-economic well-being of African-Americans. Knowledge and research methods drawn from several disciplines enable students to enhance their understanding of African-Americans’ unique social circumstances and heritage, and acquire a deeper comprehension of the history and culture of the nation as a whole. African American Studies is classical liberal arts minor. That is, the minor enhances a student’s ability to engage in critical reasoning and analytical thought, with a premium placed on written and oral communication skills.
